Couldn't ask for a better location and price in comparison to other en-suites is decent. No central communal area which is disappointing. Cleaners come twice a week but in larger flats, this is not enough. Charging £25 per room lock out is a joke, especially as they only give you one card and that is needed for room electricity. Kitchen is brilliant for cooking needs, but I'd advise to bring your own cutlery!

Q&A


Q
Is there space to put drawers under the 4ft beds. If so what is the height in cm from floor to base of the bed so I can work out if I can put storage trays underneath?

Cleaning is very good & the cleaners are lovely & friendly. The internet is uni wifi so isn't the best, loses connection often. No common room but there is the "courtyard" (outside the building with a few benches). Very good location as quick & convenient & nice views. Kitchen is a decent size depending on the flat & number of flat mates. Some of reception are really helpful, however some of them & some of maintenance seem disregarding of concerns. Had issues with flat doors which sometimes took days to sort out. Repairs take a while, granted sometimes on the weekend which is understandable but sometimes you could regard them as safety hazards & we are told they're not bad & people have came out when they haven't. They can be quite good, & when sorted out it is done well but does take a long time, & sometimes you have to ask more than once. Security really efficient and helpful, coming out fast. Ensuite is lovely but boilers are loud. It is halls after all.

No common room but overall really sociable halls to be in! Usually large flats, great facilities, en suite bathrooms are great. Room sizes are very decent and haven't met anyone who is short of storage! Kitchens are pretty new as well and plenty of storage for everyone's things in the communal space. 5 minute walk to student union, 5 minute walk to campus, 10 minute walk to the gym/sports centre. About 5-10 minute walk to dental/medical school. Also really close to the library about 5 minutes walk again! Overall would highly recommend. Only thing is it's fairly expensive compared to other accommodations

Park Terrace is one of the best accommodations at Newcastle. Flats are similar to a high end hotel standard. Bedrooms are excellent - never have had any issues with anything breaking or not working. The reception opening times are a nightmare to collect post and when you finally do get into reception, staff are generally okay with the exception of one member who is constantly rude and unhelpful. The keys that are provided are digital smart cards which are used to also operate the electricity in your bedroom. This is quite annoying as you cannot leave your electricity on in your room and go out for the day (with the exception of the sockets on the desk) - quite irritating as I couldn't use an alarm clock next to my bed. The keys also present more problems as you are required to insert the key into a slot in the wall to operate electricity which quite often means you forget to take the key with you when you leave the room - this will result in a £25 fine so that the staff can let you in!

Very clean, very spacious and probably the nicest offering from Newcastle. My only complaints are the silly office opening times for post and how silly the door locks can be.

Two minutes from the Student Union. Brilliant, new building. Everything awesome except for the internet blocking Steam and most online gaming systems.

Really good and new accommdation, really lively and in a great location(between library and campus), nice size rooms and good ensuite. Only down side is you get key cards instead of keys and its like a hotel where the key card is needed to access your room and to power the electricity. If you lock your key inside the room the security team charge you to open your room outside hours. The postcode is new so isn't update on all maps so sometimes if you order takeaway you have to direct the driver. Overall the accommodation is really amazing and the people here are amazing too.

Likened to a 5 star hotel, Park Terrace is both convenient and comfortable. There is great inter-flat interaction and the internet is more than fast enough. Staff are friendly and helpful and being right on campus means it's very convenient to get to lectures in the morning.
